Rotterdam is the city without a heart, but in my experience of studying here, The city definitely has a heart. A heart with contrasts and possibilities. The old, the new and the warm feeling I get while being in this city is the base of the jewelry collection: 'Out of ash'.
The event that set the new city in motion: the bombs that created the burning border in the second world war are the base form of every jewelry. This in combination with the materials: burned wood, standing for the old burning city, aluminum, telling the story of the new Rotterdam and bronze, standing for the warmth of the city and connecting those two materials.
